Senior Project Leadership Skills and Career Stallers: Analysis of Perception Differences and Implications for Careers

Journal Article


Abstract


  • We know little about which leadership skills matter most and according to whom in the career progression of project leaders.

    This research suggests that high-performing senior project leader talent have few skill or career staller blind spots that may

    endanger their careers. However, this may not be the case for all senior project leaders. It is therefore recommended that, as

    part of proactive career management, they seek feedback from managers who impact their careers the most. The research

    further suggests treating feedback from peers or direct reports with some caution as their ratings are significantly more generous than self ratings.
